Mad Catz announces some Move specific peripherals

Those attending PAX can take a look at some new items coming out from Mad Catz for the PlayStation Move. Really, there are two items here that are of note though. The Charging Station for PlayStation Move lets you charge up to four Move peripherals. You can also charge two controllers as well instead if you don't need the give the Move some juice.

For those that are going to be playing some gun games, the 3D Shot for PlayStation Move houses the controller and has a spring loaded trigger. If you've seen some of the commercials, it does make playing gun style games seem a lot more fun then trying to hold the Move controller towards the screen,

The other two items, a Gripz Pack and a USB Extension Cable, will also be available, but I feel the the other two mention are the notable ones.
